Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg may have collaborated on two previous real-life dramas, including Lone Survivor and Deepwater Horizon, but the actor says their upcoming film Patriots Day is much more important than anything he has ever been a part of. The 45-year-old star says though he wants all his films to do well at the box office, Patriots Day is little more special to him, reported Entertainment Weekly.
“When you’re making a movie about something like this, it really becomes about the story, the people, and not your own individual experience. These are the ones that really matter. “Obviously, I’m very serious about all the movies that I make and I want them all to be successful, and I want them all to work and serve their purpose, but this is so much more important than anything I’ve ever been a part of,” he said.
The movie details the events surrounding the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Wahlberg plays Boston Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders, a fictional character who’s a composite of officers who worked during the day of the bombing and subsequent manhunt. The film also starring Michelle Monaghan, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon and J K Simmons, is set to hit the US theatres on December 21.
